Today was another Not a Good Day. I got up again round 7:45, with again a hell of a headache, I took some Tylenol which did lower the pain but still left some pressure on top of my head. The headache was not the only issue, I continue to still have pain at the bone marrow locations as well as muscle pain in the hip area. The difference from yesterday’s getting up and this morning’s is that I was back on having used the CPAT device with a different nose mask, which was so much better than the original mask supplied.

Today was Not a Good Day. I got up round 7:45, with a hell of a headache, I took some Tylenol which did lower the pain but still left some pressure on top of my head. The headache was not the only issue, I still have pain at the bone marrow location as well as muscle pain in the hip area. I also had shoulder pain, making it difficult to turn my body. Since the pain would not go down I decided to take Dilaudid which helped a bit. I ended up with less pain in exchange with lightheadedness.

Today was a Busy Day. I woke up around 8:30, had breakfast and got ready for our trip to UCSF. Our appointment was for 3:00, but were informed if we got there earlier we may be able to see our doctor before 3:00. It turned out that way, which helped us bet the evening rush hour.

Getting back home, Dianne hook me up for my hydration. There was not much activity as I dozed off a number of times. I tried to overcome that problem, but no ons Being downstairs did not change my temperature and dozing off. I finally went back upstairs to call it a day and fall a sleep. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
